Greetings Sisters and Brothers, 

We should realize that a collective group of creative minds, with wisdom, is the key to produce a higher consciousness towards building productivity and prosperity. The time is now for us to unite and unleash our great potential that is wasting away, hidden within our subconscious minds. 

I don’t see the reason why we cannot wake up – all of us! - and activate our resources with a clear vision. There is no need to continue standing by like a piece of fertile land waiting to be discovered by exploiters. The truth is our problems will never be solved this way. 

All of us should know that allowing our brothers and sisters to live in poverty is one of mankind’s biggest crimes; there is no reason to be contented with poverty.

Let us arise and put our resources and strengths toward productivity, toward community, and let us become the producers of wealth so we can uplift our brothers and sisters from the pit of modern Babylon hell.

At the end of the day, we will be judged by our works.   


24 January

Greetings Sisters and Brothers,

We can acknowledge that the universe is always in motion and, of course. never remains the same.
So in my views it would be unproductive to stand still looking back trying to remake the past, or to imagining about the future. Because as far as I know in reality, the most important aspect of our lives is the present, living in the present, not living in the past or the future.
 We must be willing to correct the mistakes of our past, and constructively put the work towards motion for change. The truth is we need to cultivate new ideas within our consciousness, and to improve the evolution of our existence in the present.
Now is the time to make our light shine, by constructing a positive and prosperous foundation in which the next generation can learn, and can continue to advance on our good works.
 For whosoever put his or her knowledge to works in the present, will produce wisdom and overstanding that will continue and last for a life time.

Greetings to all my brothers and sisters around the world.

At this moment in our lives, the struggle continues for positive change and human freedom.

As far as I can tell, even though the World is in turmoil, the children of peace, love, and truth believe that the change we are all striving for will soon be accomplished.

Every man and woman shall be judged according to their works, whether they are negative or positive.

I am reminding everyone that the Spiritual Scale of Judgement is here, now, and no nation – and no leader of any nation - shall escape.

We need to awaken the Spiritual Consciousness within us all and realize that we are all part of The Solution.

One Love.


30 November

Greetings Sisters and Brothers, 

Do you ever consider taking time to think about the cosmic laws of karma? Every cause has its effect, and every effect has its cause – all according to the choices we make in life.

We could learn a lot about ourselves if we understand that everything we accomplish in our daily life is like sowing seeds in the garden, and that the result of our actions and experiences is the harvest. 

Each and every one of us as human beings should realize that we are judged by the things we do to ourselves and onto others. Just as some people never take responsibility for their own actions, it is not wise to blame others for one’s own misdeeds. 

If we can sow positive seeds in our works today, then we will reap the harvest of a better tomorrow.

Greetings Sisters and Brothers.

Humanity may differ in appearance with variations of complexion but, whether people want to accept this truth or not, humankind rose up from Mother Africa.

Modern day racists seem to be afraid of, or ignorant to, his or her origins by denying their ancestral African heritage - which is the origin and the beginning of mankind.

No matter if we continue building mountains between each other, the reality is still standing firm; this universal truth can never change. It will always be our judge.

Until everyone understands that all humans come from the same roots, we will continue to have the same problems.

Sadly, this is very evident at the present time.

Selah.


16 October

Greetings, my Sisters and Brothers!

Why most of the world population is still supporting commercial farmers when they are one of the world’s leading polluters, a danger to the environment and clean water, they contribute to global warming and are negative to human health?     

Eating healthy should be one of the most important aspects in our lives. 

Now is the time for us to wise up, and start supporting organic farmers in our communities so we can obtain more healthier foods.

Now is the time to stand up and, if you are able, start planting your own fruits and vegetables so you can grow your own healthy foods.

Let us move away from Babylon artificial mechanically made products and be partakers of organically grown foods that is naturally cultivated from Mother Earth. 

In the Rastafarian way of life, it is called Ital living.

One Love 


20 September

Greetings Brothers and Sisters, 

This world would be so much better if mankind came to the understanding that we are all children of the original Universal Creator, the mother and father that created this mystic and beautiful planet we called Earth. 

Rather than continuing the negative way of living that has been taught to divide humanity for thousands of years, let us take a positive look into ourselves and realize that we have so much in common which can unite us. 

It is of great importance for us to work together in unity towards the evolution and development of mankind so as to achieve unconditional love, respect and acceptance. 

We need to wake up and transform ourselves from mental segregation, and move forward with the advancement and liberation of mankind.

One Love.


29 June

Greetings, Brothers and Sisters.

Conscious women are extraordinary human beings, 

She is a powerful force within the creation of her family, and a shining light in the welfare of her community. She is admired for her positive works. 

Considered to be profound, intelligent and thoughtful, some people will never fathom the depths of a conscious woman. She is well respected, confident and secure within herself. A conscious woman lives in true divine love, with commitment and honesty. 

She is the perfect example for others, women and children alike.

One Love.

A World Hijacked By Deceitful Leaders

Greetings.

We can all agree that the Mankind is guilty of producing far too many deceitful political and religious Leaders.

The question I am asking is, Why people are still putting their trust in Leaders who are deceiving us for so many years?

Most of us, including some of the greatest minds in History, have permitted themselves to be deceived. We must not let ourselves be lead astray.

These deceitful Leaders fight every positive Human advancement that stands in their way to obtain Power and Wealth. They glorify themselves to stay in Power and maintain Control over the working poor.

I have seen the Innocent sacrifice themselves, fighting for the interests of Church and State while political Leaders and synthetic religious Saints lurk around like snakes, but they are sitting in high places. These Leaders lead a shadowy existence, while stinging the World with their seduction of lies and false promises.

Brother and Sisters, they are all liars.

These deceitful Leaders claim for themselves the concept of God, Truth, Light, Spirit, Love, and Wisdom in their own little world of corruption, while continually deceiving the Innocent.

It is time for us to stop these Babylonian educated fools from using us as their tools.

Selah.


9 March   

Greetings, Brothers and Sisters...

What is the power of the mind?

The mind is not like a side door, used once in a while. 

The mind is the engine of all development and understanding. The mind is the principal of production. By enlarging our mind, one can enter into all things to achieve positive consciousness.

The consciousness of Rastafari is one of the new concepts that will help to awaken humanity from its sleep and slumber and help unite us, enabling us to a deeper consciousness which will allow us to function with tranquility.

It is this creative and tranquil mind that makes us the master of this planet we call Mother Earth.

Let us activate and cultivate the power of the mind to help us reach our goal to reunite us as One Human Race.

Selah.


22 February

Greetings and oh what a wonderful day!

Roots Vibration Records is releasing my classic 12” vinyl disco mix GOOD OLD DAYS with I-ROY today. This song was the #2 hit on the UK Reggae Charts in 1979. MELCHIZEDEK, from my “Rastaman In Exile” album, is on the B Side. 

This release should be important to all reggae sound system and Hi-Fi operators and lovers of roots rock reggae music from the 70s.

Enjoy this - and many thanks for your support over all these many years.

One Love.


8 February

Greetings Brothers and Sisters.

Let us think about the concept of interdependency. 

The definition of interdependency is, “the quality or condition of being interdependent, or mutually reliant on each other; a situation where two or more people or things are dependent upon each other.”

In order to create a new way of life with human togetherness – interdependency – we have to live with a balanced consciousness of love and acceptance, and with mutual respect.

We have to remove the automatic discrimination, envy and bigotry that is passed from one generation to the next. All actions that are witnessed by others can begin the seeds of hatred and prejudice – or love and acceptance. 

Only with love and acceptance can we begin the process of living together as one human family and, thus, begin our journey to achieve universal and harmonious interdependency. 

Selah.

2 November 

Love with wisdom and understanding means love without discrimination. Wisdom is being able to listen first and then act accordingly. Wisdom without knowledge cannot be translated into action.

Therefore, loving with wisdom, understanding and knowledge can remove evil thoughts and actions and this translates to people who love others regardless of their nationality. These people will be careful and considerate regarding equal rights and justice for everyone.

It is important for all people around the world to conduct themselves in an honourable and moral manner. It would be better not to harbor negative feelings of hate and jealousy, or a desire to hurt others. It would be better to work in a positive way to solve problems in a peaceful manner and without conflict.

In ancient Kemet (Egypt), those in the seats of judgement cultivated a code of balance between right and wrong before proceeding. Upholding these principals is the foundation of a civilized nation governed by wisdom for the benefit of humanity. 

One Love.

The spiritual and cosmic vibrations of roots rock reggae music.

Greetings:

Reggae music has been accepted by many people around the world as the voice of the common people, the struggling everyday people.

Roots rock reggae music carries an ancient Egyptian and Ethiopian melody enhanced and advanced by Jamaican freedom fighters, singers, and musicians.

Reggae music delivers the message of equal rights and justice more than any other protest music in modern history. The powerful message of roots rock reggae has been a guiding light to help people stand up against repressive governments, call out for equal rights, and demand justice for all.

Those who feel the heartbeat of this spiritual music and truly listen to the lyrics that are sung, will no doubt experience positive change within. The truth is root rock reggae music has appeased the hearts and souls of many brothers and sisters.

For it is written in Psalms 87:7, “As well the singers as the players on instruments shall be there: all my springs are in thee.” 

Therefore I see that the signers and players of roots rock reggae music are the messengers of the Universal Creator echoing positive “Word, Sound, and Power.”

As the respect – and demand - for roots rock reggae music continues to grow, the call for equal rights and justice for all is being shouted out loud around the globe.


22 August

Greetings, Sisters and Brothers - Sharing my thoughts...

We can only overcome negative thoughts and actions when we allow love and truth to find a way into our daily lives. All desires are not possible nor are they all positive. Filling your cup with water until it overflows is not as wise as stopping in time. 

If a person fills their pockets with only silver and gold, they will not be able to enjoy the simple happiness in every day human relationships. To be proud of only your wealth and your power can be the cause of one’s own downfall.

A greedy fool will always be their own worst enemy.

Let us stand firm today and, as we abandon yesterday and ignore tomorrow, let us move forward with love and truth.

Selah.


2 July

Greetings Brothers and Sisters.

We must continue the positive struggle towards achieving spiritual and conscious enlightenment to escape Babylon and its political and religious swamps.

So many people do not pay much attention - or even listen to the truth anymore; so many people are caught up in the new world order of alternative facts. 

The swamp beasts are teaching that suffering is a virtue... that cruelty is a virtue... and that suppression is a virtue. They believe that information is a danger; they believe that peace is a danger - that love is a danger.

Anyone who accepts these fantasy speeches and made-up “facts” is rejecting reality. 

Under these negative schemes, it becomes impossible for some people to open up to their positive spiritual consciousness, remember history, understand divine human rights – and accept truth.

It is difficult to survive in a system that is denying our basic freedoms and is characterized by a diluted value of morality. 

People need to wake up and overstand that these so-called intellectuals are trying to trap us in the clumsy gloomy squeaking political machine that is hiding Babylon’s current failures.

Do not believe that the swamp beasts have changed their colors. Stay strong! Learn the facts. Educate yourself – it is the only solution to escape Babylon’s political and religious swamps.


15 June

Greetings, Brothers and Sisters.

There needs to be more balance and harmony to achieve unity in our world. It is important to think before we speak - and it is wise not to speak too much. Sometimes being silent is a better way to be heard.

There is a so-called leader traveling around the world spreading false words of harmony that are deceitful and that are ruining many lives. 

Words cannot give wisdom or bring balance and harmony if they stray from the truth.


8 May

Greetings... 

The True Concept of The One Love Revolution is for all brothers and sisters around the world to work for change. Our main goal is to move away from “alternative facts,” to accept reality, and to live by the true principles of love.

Let us come together and share our positive views and ideas so we can evolve to become better human beings.

We cannot sit back and let ourselves be burnt out from the current Babylon system; for too long we have been living under the same old philosophy which is saturated with irrational reasoning. Why do we continue our voluntary suffering for the benefit of those who created the state of war and the cruelty that has been oppressing human dignity for thousands of years? This oppression is the direct result of the errors, greed, and cowardice of blind leaders.

This is no fanatic speaking here. This is not preaching. No faith is required.

We must cultivate an abundance of wisdom, truth, knowledge, and positive spiritual consciousness. Now is the time to act on ideas and philosophies for the benefit of all mankind and to protect Mother Earth: there is no Planet B.

True knowledge and positive actions will come like a storm; we need to have our positive words turn into positive works to rebuild this broken world in The Concept of The One Love Revolution.


22 March

Greetings and Happy Spring!

Brothers and Sisters, we continue the struggle to unchain ourselves from negative history; it is time for us to free ourselves from “so-called morals” that have been imposed on us.

Manmade “laws” were created over 2,000 years ago to brainwash mankind to be dependent on religious and political leaders to survive economically and spirituality. These “laws” stand encrypted in the history of mankind - not as an exception or curiosity, but as a widespread vehicle for the humble sheep to endure suffering and pain as they followed their blind shepherds.

What does this mean?

We continue to live in a world governed by political and religious tyranny. Working people cannot be heard because we are downpressed by the mighty few who control 99% of the world’s wealth. 

When workers ask why their lives cannot be better, the politicians say that we are not working hard enough and the religious leaders blame us with the concept of sin – we should look to the distant stars for a “savior” to come and solve our problems. 

Think about this...

It is springtime; it is time to start anew...

Selah.

31 January

Greetings in this New Year, to all my brothers and sisters around the world.

The struggle continues to obtain equal rights and justice.

Today we are confronted with a new patriarchal chauvinist self-proclaimed bully who believes he has the whole world in the palm of his hand. But little does he know that the foundation of Babylon system has been scrumbling to the ground for many years; they all pretend to be strong but they are very weak, indeed. Fire is at the political beast’s tail - and they think it is a cool breeze.

The political and religious systems of Modern Babylon are in for a rude awakening:  progressive people around the world are rising up and we will never give in. We will not hold our tongues from exalting human rights, truth, equality, and freedom. It was a great joy to see millions of enlightened people unite with word, sound, and power, protesting in peace and with love, standing up with one voice to the system’s new-found bully.

 The voice of all spiritual revolutionaries is the voice of the Creator. The voice of evil men shall diminish under Jah’s love and righteousness. 

 Let us continue to keep up the pressure, and fight onward to overcome injustice.

Selah.


15 November

Is it possible to build trust with our fellow human beings?

Greetings Brothers and Sisters.

We cannot rebuild the brotherhood of man unless we cultivate positive human relationships. If we continue in the present system of Babylon then we will never accomplish universal change. It is long overdue for people of every nation come together and create a new educational ideology built on the spiritual concept of equal rights and justice for all - with ethical conduct, virtues, and truth to promote integrity, spiritual consciousness, and better human over-standing.

The first step we need to take is to completely forgive ourselves as well as others, and evolve from the transgressions of the past. We need to improve communication among all nations to overcome fear and mistrust. We must apply the philosophy of the living truth in our own lives first, purify our own consciousness, so we can begin the reconstruction of the human family.

Positive self-development will translate into becoming reliable and responsible leaders and citizens - honest members of a new human society.


2 November

Greetings, Brothers and Sisters.

It is deceiving how biblical theologians and authors have lied to the world about the exodus that took place from ancient Kemet, now known as Egypt. At that time in Egypt, there was wide-spread social and political unrest. A Greek general name Ptolemy I Soter declared himself pharaoh over the state of Egypt.

After doing much research over the years, I recently came upon some historical facts about the exodus from Egypt. We should all remember that the theologians state that “slavery was the cause for the exodus” – this is not true. Actually, a renegade Egyptian priest by the name of Osarsiph fled Egypt with over 400,000 followers that consisted of three different African tribes. The Akan, the Afrim, and the Kwahu people are the true people of the exodus. Osarsiph was inaccurately “re-named” Moses by the authors of the Torah and the Bible. 

The Afrim tribe migrated to Ethiopia and were later known as The Tribe of the Falasha. The Akan and the Kwahu people journeyed to West African and founded what is now known as Ghana, Senegal, and Mali, where they began a new culture based on ancient Egyptian spirituality, wisdom, and knowledge. This new civilization later developed the University of Timbuktu, a leading educational center for higher learning in Mali.

It is very disheartening that the achievements of Africans have been distorted and often times removed from history.

Selah.


20 October

Hidden Historical Facts...

I am sharing some hidden facts with my brothers and sisters. 

In my research I have discovered that it was the Akan People, originally from Egypt, who migrated to West Africa and then fled to the Jewish people, that the bible spoke about in the Exodus were actually over 403,000 ancient Egyptian people named the Akan People. 

The real exodus was the Akan People, not the Children of 

I becoming acquainted some written testimony of a Jewish Roman writer named Flavius Josephus who wrote the Old Testament during the Roman occupation of Palestine for the new Jewish religion who in his essay against opinion paraphrases the Egyptian analyst exploitation of the exodus indicating that the people that exodus from Egypt were themselves Egyptians.

Though outcast, these Akan People were the ones departed after the first so-called Greek phorah family named Ptolemy after the death of Alexander 3332BC  who conquered Northern Africa.

Ptolemy I Soter (Greek: Πτολεμαῖος Σωτήρ, Ptolemaĩos Sōtḗr, i.e., Ptolemy the Savior, (ca. 367 B.C.E. — ca. 283 B.C.E.) was a Macedoniaian general under Alexander the Great who became ruler of Egypt (323 B.C.E. — 283 B.C.E.) and founder of Ptolemaic dynasty which ruled Egypt until the Roman conquest in 30 C.E. In 305/304 B.C.E. he took the title of pharaoh. Ptolemy I was one of Alexander the Great's most trusted generals, and among the seven somatophylakes, or bodyguards, attached to his person. 

The Akan people exodus to west Africa and start all over again where they created a great civilization all over western Africa including the great educational center named Timbuktu and with all this great accomplishment there works was destroyed by Islam and Christianity. 

 This same man, Flavious Josephus, renamed him as Moses for the Jewish religious book called the Torah. 

The Akan people exodus to west Africa and start all over again where they created a great civilization all over western Africa including the great educational center named Timbucktu and with all this great accomplishment there works was destroyed by Islam and Christianity. 

Some of them taken as slaves to North America and the Caribbean.


11 October

The truth must be known...

“One man denies the truth, another denies his own actions. Both continue to live in their own darkness. In the end, they both offend the truth.”

Words spoken by one of the wisest African man who ever lived; his name is Imhotep.
This great African, Imhotep, internationally known as the first multi-genius. He was the world’s first medical scientist; Imhotep is the creator of medicine as we know it – over 4,600 years ago!
Europeans and European-American educators teach that Hippocrates, the Greek physician, was sometimes referred to as the "Father of Early Medicine.” If this teaching was true, why did Hippocrates himself pay homage to the teachings of Imhotep?Babylon has and continues to deceive the world with their lies and prejudice so that most of mankind continues to live in mental darkness. It is long over-do for Western educators and historians to teach about Africans contributions to civilization.
As Imhotep said, “The truth you live today will set you free tomorrow.”
Selah.

Working For Change...

Greetings, brothers and sisters,

At the present time in world events, we are witnessing a political and economic drama that is being played out in the global arena. We need to open up our consciousness and read the signs of history, and not make the same mistakes that were made in the past. Let us not allow ourselves to be deceived by systematic folly-tricks or be caught up in games of distraction.

A great awakening is happening around the world, and people are making their voices heard. It is time for progressive people of all nations to stand up, wise up, and fight for positive change. As long as we work together with respect and tolerance, the negative forces of Babylon can never stop us. Together we can move forward to rebuild and reconstruct the human family with unity and love. 

We should be optimistic and energized to work together to obtain positive change. Now is the moment, our chance to help shape the future.

Come... join me in The One Love Revolution. 


30 June

Greetings! Sharing my thoughts with you...

The true face of a hypocrite is hidden within their subconscious mind. They mask their evil intentions to make their words sound like the truth.

According to the Law of Nature, we cannot change the mind of the wolf to think like the sheep. Neither can we change the mind of the sheep to think like the wolf. It is only a foolish shepherd who will allow a pack of wolves to lead his flock. Sooner or later, the wolves will devour the sheep.

There is now a leader who is a wolf.


24 May

Sisters and Brothers... It has been too long in the wind, standing in the falling rain...

Most of us acknowledge that we are at the crossroads of history. Mankind’s fate is hanging in the balance because of worldwide instability. People are thirsty for change, and eager for a brighter future.  All over the world, I hear the cry for unity, the cry for better human relationships.

In the meantime, there are more questions than answers. We need to take a stand against the empty promises of lying politicians and blind religious leaders.

In my opinion, progressive people need to be more active in our vision to lay out a positive agenda to accomplish change. To move forward, we need to have serious and sincere efforts to re-educate our young people about the values of true democracy – the acceptance of freedom and equality between all people - to achieve positive changes. 

We all know that the present world system is corrupt and that we are living in a time of broken dreams. We need to take action to improve the present and the future, to rebuild the dignity and unity of the human family. 

We are still too long in the wind, standing in the falling rain...

Please join I & I in the One Love Revolution.


30 April

Greetings and many thanks to all reggae DJs around the world for their continued support of my music, especially RASTAMAN IN EXILE, my latest release. 

Without your hard works and help, brothers and sisters cannot hear my message of the One Love Revolution – the message is in the music and the music is in the message. 

I look forward to meeting you – and reggae fans! - in person on the RASTAMAN IN EXILE Fall/Winter Tour.  We are all in this struggle together, working for the consciousness and upliftment of humanity. Thank you all. One Love.


30 March

Greetings Brothers and Sisters!

In these times of trouble and frustration, we must not let our passions overcome our virtues.

In this struggle, we need to stand strong, like a massive rock on the shore, and not let the dashing of the waves pull us down.

We must raise our heads high, stand tall like a tower on a hill, and shout out a revolutionary plea for unity. Our voices must be heard all over the world.

Together we will trample down the system of modern Babylon with hard work, love, and courage in our hearts, which will sustain us on our spiritual journey to achieve freedom. 

The way we think and act today is who we become tomorrow.

One Love.


23 March

Greetings to One and All,

I send my condolences to all the victims and families and loved ones affected by the terrorist incident that took place in London yesterday. Please do not let this tragedy turn us away from working to achieve peace love and harmony. This is no time for us to allow evil to destroy the unification of our human family.

Give peace a chance. Selah.

One Love.


2 March

Greetings brothers and sisters - Wake up everybody! 

We can acknowledge that when the world is at peace, it is much easier for people’s lives to be filled with love, happiness, and joy. However, we are now living in a crazy world under crazy leaders who are applying Babylon’s laws, laws which lead innocent people to live under pressure and fear.

Now is the time for us to return to the ancient spiritual concept of MAAT, which is the universal law of love and unity. Let us work hard to bring our spiritual consciousness together to cleanse Mother Earth from all destructive disorder.

No more backward thinking, time for thinking ahead. 


9 February

Greetings Brothers and Sisters!
Ever since the founders of fake religion and poli-tricks burned down the Library of Alexandria in ancient Egypt, it was the beginning of suppression of truth about spiritual civilization and equality. The destruction of this Library has become a symbol of "knowledge and culture destroyed."
From that time until this moment, religious and political leaders dis-inform the masses with lies - which in today’s world are called “alternative facts.”
They were able to replace the truth with fiction and instituted wholesales lies as a means to destroy all literature that explained human understanding of cosmology, theology, and divine science, and about the evolution and brotherhood of the human family.
For the past 600 years, mankind has been mentally blindsided living in a corrupted world monopolized by fake news.
It is time for us to seek the door of truth and open it; truth, wisdom, knowledge, and over-standing can only be achieved when we are willing to work hard and struggle to obtain them.
Democracy without truth, equal rights, and justice will never prevail.
Selah.

Crossing the River of Mystery Babylon

Greetings Sisters & Brothers... 

How wonderful it could be if we could come together and help our struggling brothers and sisters around the world cross over the Rivers of Mystery Babylon. 

Those people who are living in a state of confusion stand on the negative side of the River with no solution. Those who over-come mental darkness will be able to live in a positive light that is free from Mystery Babylon desires and possessions. Those who are spiritually wise will construct a path to cross beyond the reach of Babylon judgement, and will join I & I as freedom souls. 

We all want to be free people, fighters for the balanced scale of justice, working together to open the seven lights of the seven seals within our consciousness. 

I & I have crossed over the Rivers of Mystery Babylon; let us come together and celebrate the real purpose of life in the coming New Year. Let us create a new way of life in the concept of peace, love, and unity as we join together in the One Love Revolution.


1 December

False Leaders

The main reason why a false leader cannot truly lead is because they neglect the moral law of Maat, the ancient Egyptian concept of truth, balance, order, harmony, law, morality, and justice. Instead, these false leaders cling to jealousy, war, and greed, using lies and pretense in their great desire to manipulate their followers.

And also, if any man or woman determines to accomplish positive works with force, anger, or speed, they will miss the way of the Cosmic Law of Awareness.

But if you quietly consider what is right and what is wrong by receiving all opinions equally, without haste or prejudice, you become one with the Cosmic Law. Only then, you can wisely observe, evaluate, and make decisions that are the best for the interest of all people. Strive to live a virtuous life of non-violence, moderation, and purity. Restrain from negative works. Beware of those leaders who speak sweet words without works. 

Gray hairs do not make a person wise. A wise person lives with knowledge, wisdom, and overstanding. He who is wise is eloquent; the quiet man stays quiet, loving, and fearless as he knows that many leaders disguise themselves with manipulative speech. Listen carefully.


20 October

Greetings!

When I was a child growing up in Jamaica, I heard people say that, “The world we are living in is black and white, yellow and brown - and we should live as one.” 

However, some children were taught to judge other human beings simply based on their complexion.

Now that I am a mature man and have obtained some wisdom, knowledge, and understanding, I realize that the philosophy of acceptance I was taught was, and is, the proper and correct way to teach our youth - and to live our lives.  

Every man and woman should be proud of their heritage no matter where they were born; everyone should be delighted in the image of their creation, their native language, their culture, and their historical customs. 

We need to move away from the blind mentality of judging other people who are different from us. Move away from the negativity of separating people and stereotyping others based on their complexion. - this causes fear. Living in fear is a self-made exile. Mankind cannot continue to live in fear of each other and pretend to be free.

The time has come for us to understand that all human beings are fruit of one vineyard and are each and all a part of Mother Earth. We all serve our purpose to make the Garden of Life a beautiful - and colorful - place to be.

One Love.


19 September

Greetings, Everyone! 

The great ancient African teacher and philosopher Imotep prophesized that we must work together to rebuild and restore a new Civilization for the benefit of Mankind - whether we are living in, or outside, the Motherland.

We must look within ourselves and learn from past History in order to understand how can we rebuild Mother Earth and become majestic continents of Nations once more, so we can live together in Love, Peace, and Harmony...

A great healing of all Nations can evolve from this present sick system, this world filled with hate, violence, and broken promises, a world without Spiritual Consciousness IF WE WORK TOGETHER to build a new Social Evolution.

Peace-loving people are longing to live a Life of Love, and to see Unity shine once more in a United World. What a great re-discovery it would be, to make a start and rebuild the Brotherhood of Man.

When all Children of the Cosmic Creator gather under the ancient spiritual Tree of Life, Mother Earth shall become one positive circle again.


7 September

Greetings Everyone!

For several years, my fans have been telling me that the songs on Rastaman In Exile are as relevant now as they were when I recorded them 36 years ago. These fans, plus many DJs and journalists around the world who have supported my music over the decades, have encouraged me to release the album on CD.

I am delighted to announce the new and extended version of Rastaman In Exile will be released on CD on September 22, 2016 (JML Records/JML106SC-CD).

 I am honored to have worked with one of the best Reggae producers, the late Harry Johnson, and the sound engineer Sylvan “The Scientist” Morris since I began my recording career in 1974 at Harry J Recording Studio in Kingston, Jamaica. Sylvan recorded and mixed the original Rastaman In Exile, and he continues to co-produce my works, and he is also my conscious and spiritual bredren.

And it was a pleasure to work with some of Jamaica’s best musicians and singers - 

Bass - Robbie Shakespeare, Bertram “Ranchie” McLean

Drums - Leroy "Horsemouth” Wallace, Sly Dunbar, Mikey “Boo” Richards

Lead guitar - Noel "Sowell" Bailey, Andy Bassford

Rhythm guitar - Eric "Bingi Bunny" Lamont, Dwight Pickney, Andy Bassford

Piano - Gladstone “Gladdy” Anderson

Organ - Winston Wright

Keyboards - Earl “Wire” Lindo, Franklyn “Bubbler” Waul, Robbie Lynn, Ansel Collins

Horns - Dean Fraser, Ronald “Nambo” Robinson, Junior Chin, Glen DaCosta

Percussion - Noel “Scully” Simms, Herman “Bongo Herman” Davis

Harmonica - Jimmy Becker

Backing Vocals - Marcia Griffiths, Annesa Banks, Keble Drummond

I was fortunate to meet Roy Romeijn (Mabruku Extendedzz) when I was in Holland in 2014; Roy provided the extended mixes of the album’s two bonus tracks, “Let The People Go” and “Natty Dread Surprise.” Thank you, Roy, for your long-time support of my music and our new friendship.

My music is livicated to my brothers and sisters around the world who are struggling for equal rights and justice, self-reliance, and independence. I hope that you will join with me in the One Love Revolution.

Greetings Sisters & Brothers around the World...

We are in a political season in which we see many Babylon poli-tricksters visiting communities of hard working people, continuing their All Fools’ Day games. These tricksters are seeking votes which will never be counted in the selection of a new actor as the leading Spokesperson to represent Babylon's Economical Scheme.

In these times of basic Human needs, the poli-tricksters are of no help to us; they represent the interests of the Global Elite Oppressors who control the Economic distribution of Wealth. They are the agents of a failed System.

We should endeavor to avoid conversing with poli-tricksters; they come protected by their strange forces while speaking cunning words and propaganda to promote Evil. They do not pay attention to our cries because our voices are drowned out in their ridiculous crowds and Illusions.

If We The People realize that we have the Power in our hands, we can change the course of History in a positive way. We are giving the Warning before the Dawning that we are Here and we see Clear.

May these words rest in the Consciousness of our Minds and give Truth a chance to set us Free.

We must never forget that the Cosmic Spirit is for Life, and the Body is for Living.

Selah.

Have you ever asked yourself, “Who am I?” “What am I?” “Why am I here?”

Greetings, my Brothers and Sisters,

We are taught that, “In the beginning was The Word,” but, in reality, it is the image and energy of the Cosmic Creator that is the Intelligency and the Foundation of Life, which dwells within Human existence. Engulfed in this confusion, our brains control the Seat of Power (Intellect) for all that we are in our Lives.

 Babylon is searching for the Keys to the Mystery of Life - keys which have been hidden from their so-called Wise Men (Scientists and Archeologists).

 Let us all take a deep look into the reflection of our Existence; did we simply just “happen” without Meaning or Purpose, or, were we intelligently designed and created by the powerful Cosmic (Energy) Creator for a special purpose?

 We should overstand the reason why the Lower Institutions of Babylon’s Educational Systems are trying to erase the reality that Mankind is the recreation of the Cosmic Creator: this is the Mystery.

One Love.

Where Do We Go From Here?

Greetings, All, 

In this revealing time of our History, we all should realize that the present World System is deteriorating. Many people around the World don’t even acknowledge the true Values of Life any more, or the causes for their Unhappiness and Destress.  But there is one thing we all know: the so-called Leaders of this World have let us down in so many ways.

It is heartbreaking when innocent People put their Trust in the System of Church and State, only to be deceived by the Devils in High Places who do not have the Spiritual Vision and Wisdom to inspire their Nations toward World Peace and Security. These Devils love to preach and make promises while, at the same time, they give approval and blind acceptance to the Ways and Means that produce War and Destruction.

This current World System has given Assent and Confirmation to Warmongers and the Corporate Elite who, with their Power, threaten the Social Fabric of Civilization for their own selfish interests. 

The World has simply been going in the wrong direction. Civilization is at a crossroads. What is the future for our children and generations to follow?


28 June

In the Spring of your youth, when the eyes of Negative People gaze on you and they show you their plastic smiles, the secret voice of Mother Nature whispers words of wisdom to inform you to be cautious of these negative people and their seductive and cunning suggestions. 

In this moment of Truth, you learn to protect and guard your Heart and Soul against the persuasive negativity from these so-called teachers. 

One of the weaknesses that I have discovered in human nature is that we take delight and pleasure in fantasy and illusion, which can bring decadence to our Spirituality. 

We must learn to acknowledge the Truth, in its simplicity, to uplift our Consciousness.

This will help us listen to, and reason with, the Cosmic Creator within each of us which will, in turn, teach us the Positive Way to live in Truth, Peace, Unity, and Universal Love.

The Educated Fools
True wisdom is less presuming than folly. When a wise person is in doubt, they make the necessary changes, while a fool is obstinate, knowing (and defending) only their own ignorance.
A wise man or woman always shares their wisdom with the innocent and less fortunate, while the educated fool boasts about their material wealth and ignores the problems of the poor.
The children of spiritual wisdom must overcome the political follies and cunning religious ways of these educated fools. These so-called "leaders" who disguise and mask themselves - like wolves in sheep's clothing - will be exposed, and history will be their judge.
The universal laws of nature allow human beings to have free will and to decide their own destinies. It is now the time for all wise men and women, and the children of spiritual wisdom, to stop educated fools from continuing to use innocent people for their selfish greed.
